Barche da pesca a riposo su mari azzurre - Sorrento Marina Grande
"Fishing boats resting on the azure seas - Sorrento Marina Grande"...
The fishing boats were resting in anticipation of the early morning’s excursion at sea, with the Bay of Naples in the distant background, and the bellissimo sunset illuminating the sky and water for a pleasant photograph. The second evening in Sorrento, about the time I finally learned how to drive alongside the very crazy Vespa riders who have absolutely no rules for the road, I stumbled upon Sorrento’s famous Marina Grande. Grande means big, but it’s really a tiny fishing village; hardly large at all but very picturesque. Marina Grande was a God send that evening as it supported all the qualities a tired, hungry photographer was looking for: sunset, sea, sand, boats, skies, and great seafood. Did I say seafood? Arriving around 8:00 PM, just in time for dramatic sunset images, and leaving after dinner around midnight, the Marina was very Grande! The difficulty in photographing boats in low light is the movement of the boat in the water causing “ghosting” of the image. I was fortunate to have the latest technology, a steady hand, and the hand of God keeping the boats still for my long exposures. This image is actually technically quite miraculous. If you look closely, the water in the foreground is blurred by its movement; however, the boats are perfectly still…very unusual. And, yes, the seafood was “eccezionale” (exceptional)!
